Dogs on the loose

My husband and I moved to Vernon just over a month ago and have enjoyed exploring Vernon and the surrounding areas.

On Sept. 21 we drove to BX Park in order to hike from one end to the other end where the falls are.

At both ends of the trail there were very distinct signs prohibiting dogs in the park.

Throughout our hike, we encountered several people – and all of them had a dog or dogs with them running free (in one case, it was three dogs).

Indeed, we were the only people who did not have a dog with us.

I have to assume one of three things: these people felt the rules did not apply to them; they do not respect the environment of the park; or they can’t read.
